Limited time offer:
No time to build, the Magellan Neo is available as Receiver ready PNF in limited quantities.
Comes with Compact 700 motor and (6) servos installed and a 25A esc.
The Magellan-Neo is the continuing effort in development. Many times copied never equaled, it remains one of the finest entry level thermal duration glider, in hybrid composite construction. Coming from the Carbon D-light and Koleos series of electric gliders from ICARE. They are based on the same moulded carbon D-box technology that made the Carbon D-light so successful. This type of construction results in a very strong, light wing and a very accurate airfoil shape over the leading edge - the most important part of the airfoil.
Now in the Magellan-Neo is in its 5th iteration has follows continuing improvement. The fuselage design has again been overhauled to become a slimmer and lighter fuselage made from full Kevlar/carbon cloth, for extreme strength, stiffness and lightness. We kept the nose large enough to accommodate outrunner, while we highly recommend the use of the specifically designed Compact 700 motor.
The design of the fuselage is now a high pressure molded fuselage still made from full Kevlar/carbon cloth, for even more lightness. The all up weight has come down an other 2 oz.
The V-tail, is still removable for ease of transportation and control surfaces are actuated by the installed push rods, allowing precise control of the elevator. Servos are installed underneath the wings, allowing easy access.
whole wing is a moulded D-box construction, even the trailing edge,
improving the overall stiffness of the wing. Aileron and flaps are
molded and Kevlar hinged for extra durability. This, combined
with an overall easy handling, results in a sailplane that will allow
you to work small low-level thermals with confidence.
All parts of the Magellan are
pre-finished, so very little time is required to get it into the
air. The two-piece wing is completely finished and covered in Oracover
Light, it holds together by means of a steel rod and against the
fuselage with bolts. The buil-up V-tail with moulded control surfaces is covered and ready to bolt on.
The fuselage comes complete with a trimmed canopy, wing hold down block.
You will need 6 of your favorite sub-micro servos and a micro receiver.
Hardware package and instruction are completing the kit.
have created an extremely well balanced setup for this glider by using a
small powerful outrunner in its spinner the Compact 700 (which weights only 58 g, including spinner), this
setup will give a nice 200-250 W, power level can be adjusted
by changing prop size to suit pilots wanted climb rate. Other setups
available upon request!
